Yes I’ve washed eggs and had really successful hatch rates. Better to clean them off.So my eggs arrived but USPS did not follow the sender's instructions: hold at post office for pickup. Who knows if this is the reason, but 5 eggs came broken. Luckily there are still 14 (the sender sent me TONS of freebies!).
I carefully wiped off the egg off the other eggs, but did not rinse or anything. Is wiping the yolk off going to do damage to the remaining eggs? Help!

I’m checking mine tonight. I can’t shake the thought I’ve got a cracked egg in there.Well? Is it Halloween yet? Can we check the eggs now? One of them might be early. Oh, come on — it’s been two whole days already! Can’t it get here faster?!?
Oooohhh, this is fun, channeling my inner 6-year-old.
Oh no! Are you using quail rails?Omg. I did absolutely have a crack. Two.
First this one that was developing. It was virtually crushed on the side so I didn’t try and fix it.

I’m not a huge fan of the Brinsea trays for quail. Clearly they take a little getting used to. I’m terrified to touch them now.
SO... set 54. Cracked 3, total. Down to 51. Can definitely see development I’ll candle in a few days and see how many. I need to find the snap on candle adjuster thingy for these tiny eggs.
Yes inside the goose trays. Live and learn.Oh no! Are you using quail rails?
